Marvel at the architectural features of the St Leger Stand and other buildings in the grounds. Peter will take you into the fascinating Old Tote Building which houses the unique Julius Totalisator and the museum.
Then Mr Racing himself, Bart Sinclair will take you on a tour of the new stables housed infield of the racetrack. This is a very rare opportunity to view this state-of-the-art complex.
